Turns Out Ford's Tiniest Cop Car Is Still Badass Enough To Nab Criminals


Now all officers can get in on the fun.

There is a constant war between criminals and police. Luckily, the men and women of the law have a decent amount of horsepower in their arsenal to combat hopeful criminals. These come in the form of some high-horsepower offerings from the big three automakers of Detroit. Just like any organization with a hierarchy, being higher on the cop ladder means less grunt work. To reflect this, Ford offers a more fuel-efficient and less pursuit-oriented version of its Interceptor for detectives and other bigwigs who only show up after the legwork has been done.

This car has a 240 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, formidable but petty against the 365-horsepower chase cars that Ford offers. However, the Michigan State Police and the LA Sheriff's department recently decided to include the 2.0-liter into their annual test to determine just how pursuit-worthy the car is. Turns out, criminals still need to worry about the bureaucratic police staff because the 2.0-liter EcoBoost was "pursuit-rated" by both agencies. This may be because the 2.0-liter retains the heavy-duty suspension, brakes, wheels, and upgraded alternator that the other chase cars get. Stay mindful of all cop cars that get behind you when you decide to toss beer cans out the window.
